"Queen Sugar" tells the story of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Louisiana. At the center of the family are Nova, a journalist and activist; Charley, the wife and manager of an NBA player; and formerly incarcerated father Ralph Angel, who is searching for redemption. Following a tragedy in the family, the siblings must put their complicated lives aside so that they can come together to run the clan's struggling sugar cane farm. Also involved in the farm are Aunt Violet and family friend Remy Newell.
The program is laudable, in vision and execution. Winfrey and DuVernay have said that they wanted to showcase topics that mattered to them in “Queen Sugar” — such as mass incarceration, about which DuVernay has made a documentary. And in making a story that centers on black women owning property, the producers are offering a theme of empowerment to one of the most disenfranchised demographics...To be sure, it seems possible that “Queen Sugar” wants to be nothing more than a soapy Southern fantasy of deep roots and sprawling family, with overarching character beats less significant than the mere existence of these conversations and concerns on television. If that is the case, DuVernay has ensured that the series will, at least, be a very fine-looking one.--Sonia Saraiya, Variety, September 2, 2016
